That’s unusual for NAD, always used to be known for being bulletproof.I know what I found out this year .... 2.5k worth of amp is nowhere near as good value as a 1k amp. I had a couple of 1k Pioneer amps over the last 20 years, lasted years .... Got the NAD T778 lasted less than 5 months first one was faulty ... Second ones put my sub in the repair shop and has a problem on the NAD no timescale fix list. Not going for a 3rd and I still don't think it's got a better sound than my old pioneer for cinema.... Music yes it is better but cinema is my priority. Major dissapiontment with the NAD here.
Our awards are always in November Ken. Anything good that gets released afterwards will be considered for next year's awards.
